  2. RCEP: A secret deal

    • Rachel Tansey, Sam Cossar-Gilbert
    20 Julio 2018
    Report

    The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) is a mega regional trade deal involving sixteen nations from Asia-Pacific. RCEP will impact the lives of billions of people, from the quality of the food they eat to the energy they consume and the affordability of life-saving medicines. Yet, RCEP negotiations are being conducted almost completely in secret, with limited to no meaningful public participation. Most elected officials have, at best, limited access to the negotiating texts, which remain out of reach for civil society.

    ΣΎΝΟΨΗ

    Η δεινή κατάσταση των 66 εκατομμυρίων ανθρώπων που έχουν εκτοπιστεί αναγκαστικά φαίνεται να ενοχλεί τη συνείδηση της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης (ΕΕ) μόνο όταν κάποια τραγωδία στα σύνορα της Ευρώπης βρεθεί στο επίκεντρο των μέσων ενημέρωσης. Μόνο ένα ευρωπαϊκό κράτος - η Γερμανία - συγκαταλέγεται στις δέκα χώρες που δέχονται τους περισσότερους πρόσφυγες παγκοσμίως. Έτσι, η τεράστια πλειοψηφία των αναγκαστικά εκτοπισμένων ανθρώπων καταλήγει να φιλοξενείται από μερικά από τα φτωχότερα κράτη του κόσμου. Οι άνθρωποι αυτοί παύουν να είναι «αόρατοι» μόνο όταν κάποιες κοινότητες στα σύνορα, όπως το Καλαί, η Λαμπεντούζα και η Λέσβος, εμφανίζονται στις ειδήσεις ενώ απελπισμένοι άνθρωποι που εγκαταλείπουν τη βία καταλήγουν να πεθαίνουν, να κρατούνται, ή να παγιδεύονται.

    Samenvatting

    Het lot van de 66 miljoen gedwongen ontheemden ter wereld schijnt alleen het geweten van de Europese Unie te beroeren wanneer de media hun schijnwerpers richten op een tragedie aan de Europese grenzen. Slechts één Europees land – Duitsland – staat in de top tien van landen wereldwijd die vluchtelingen ontvangen, terwijl de overgrote meerderheid van de gedwongen ontheemden opgevangen wordt in enkele van ‘s werelds armste landen. De onzichtbaarheid wordt daarom alleen doorbroken wanneer grensgemeenschappen zoals Calias, Lampedusa en Lesvos in het nieuws komen te staan, wanneer wanhopige mensen die op de vlucht zijn voor geweld uiteindelijk de dood vinden, worden gedetineerd of klem zitten in moeilijke omstandigheden.

    Sintesi

    Il dramma dei 66 milioni di sfollati forzati nel mondo sembra turbare la coscienza dell’Unione europea solo quando i riflettori dei media portano alla luce una tragedia alle sue frontiere. Solo un Paese dell’UE – la Germania – sta nella top ten dei Paesi che ospita gli sfollati, che per lo più sono ospitati da Paesi tra i più poveri del mondo.

    Résumé du rapport

    La situation désespérée des 66 millions de personnes déplacées dans le monde ne semble troubler la conscience européenne que lorsqu’un drame a lieu à ses frontières et se retrouve sous le feu des projecteurs médiatiques. Un seul État européen – l’Allemagne – se place dans les dix premiers pays au monde en termes d’accueil des réfugiés : la grande majorité des personnes contraintes de migrer est accueillie par des États se classant parmi les plus pauvres au monde. Les migrations ne deviennent visibles aux yeux de l’Union européenne (UE) que lorsque les médias s’intéressent aux communautés frontalières de Calais, Lampedusa ou Lesbos et exposent le sort de personnes désespérées, fuyant la violence et qui finissent par mourir, être mises en détention ou se retrouver bloquées.

    Zusammenfassung

    Die Notlage der 66 Millionen vertriebenen Menschen in der Welt scheint das Gewissen der Europäischen Union nur dann zu beunruhigen, wenn die Aufmerksamkeit der Medien auf Tragödien an den Grenzen Europas gerichtet ist. Nur ein europäisches Land - Deutschland – findet sich unter den Top-Ten-Nationen, die Flüchtlinge aus den ärmsten Ländern der Welt aufnehmen. Das Flüchtlingselend wird nur dann sichtbar, wenn Orte an den Außengrenzen der Union - wie Calais, Lampedusa, Lesbos - in den Nachrichten auftauchen, wenn verzweifelte Menschen, die vor Gewalt flüchten, getötet oder inhaftiert werden.

    Report

    The EU has made migration control a central goal of its foreign relations, rapidly expanding border externalisation measures that require neighbouring countries to act as Europe's border guards. This report examines 35 countries, prioritised by the EU, and finds authoritarian regimes emboldened to repress civil society, vulnerable refugees forced to turn to more dangerous and deadly routes, and European arms and security firms booming off the surge in funding for border security systems and technologies.

    Paper

    Situating questions about neoliberalism, nationalism and populism in Sri Lanka helps to broaden understanding of historical and political developments. Do neoliberal policies emerge in the West and then spread to the Global South, or do neoliberal policies evolve in confrontations with nationalist, populist and other political projects and go through considerable innovation in the Global South?

  18. The Hidden Costs of RCEP and corporate trade deals in Asia

    • Cecilia Olivet, Kat Moore, Sam Cossar-Gilbert, Natacha Cingotti
    08 Diciembre 2016
    Report

    The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) trade deal under negotiation between 16 Asian countries would grant corporations exclusive rights to sue governments at international tribunals. This report reveals that investors have launched 50 lawsuits at secret international arbitration tribunals against governments negotiating the RCEP agreement for a total of at least $31 billion US dollars. These lawsuits provide a warning of the potential high costs of the proposed RCEP trade deal. RCEP will deepen the rights of investors and lock in place this system of privatised justice.
